The Friends of the Florida Maritime Museum launched FLMaritimeFriends.org and their new social media accounts on August 20, 2021.
The Friends of the Florida Maritime Museum's mission since its inception in 2012 has been to support the Florida Maritime Museum through community outreach, education and financial support. Today we extend that mission to bring the Museum's historical perspective full circle by educating the public on the transformations facing Florida's present day commercial fishing industries. The new website and social media will act as a way to share photos, videos, and education about the current commercial fishing industry in Cortez and throughout the state of Florida.
Funding for www.FLMaritimeFriends.org and social media development has been provided by the Edward K. Roberts Emerging Needs Fund of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.
